Jake O’Brien fights hard to lay and pray again

I don’t like Jake O’Brien, but when I heard that he had a potentially career ending injury, I was nice and wished him a speedy recovery. Now that his recovery is almost complete, I can go back to shitting on him for being a boring lay n pray fighter that I never want to see in the Octagon again.

Here’s an idea: let’s put Jake O’Brien against Justin McCully. Or perhaps we shouldn’t … the combination of these two unskilled opponents might be too much for the fabric of the space/time continuum. A vortex will open up in the Octagon and Deep Elder Cthulu will emerge from within to enslave earth. Fortunately, Jake O’Brien will score the takedown on Cthulu and lay on him for the next 4 million years, saving mankind with his brave sacrifice/strategy.

    Jake O”brien is the guy Dana makes you fight when you have one fight left on you’re contract and are being difficult in renegotiating

    That’s like watching a paperweight with a mullet fight wet paper towel.

    I really wish I could edit my own comments…

    fightlinker, only you could make wishing ill on someone overcoming hardship in their life sound so funny.

    You’re being harsh. The guy has won 8 of his 10 fights by TKO/KO. I guess with MMA fans, you’re only as good or as exciting as your last fight.

  • Alex

    oh, and 7 of those TKOs/KOs were within the first round.

    poor ol’ jake. all he did was horrify the world. is that so awful?

  • garth

    Alex: the problem is that the one fight he was seen in by a large audience he layed’n’prayed. and couldn’t choke out herring despite having his back about 18 of the 15 minutes of the fight. I agree with you that the “last fight” thing is lame, but sometimes it’s because of their one and only large-scale appearance bein a dud.
    personally i’d be okay with seeing jake again.

    I could swear I rented a ufc dvd in which Jake laid and prayed like it was going outta style. Again. So, like, it wasn’t just the one time.

  • fightlinker

    The problem with wrestlers is when they’re outclassed they go back to their meat and potatos, and that’s getting a guy onto his back and holding him there. O’Brien was a knockout artist in the minor leagues because he was the most skilled guy there, but now that he’s hitting guys just as good or better, he falls back to using what he does best to control the fight.

    Cthulu HAHA!
